In what will be a multi-tower, mixed use development in the new center of Shenyang, the first portion to be completed is the Forum 66 retail mall. The long, curved retail corridors will provide a pedestrian connection and transit hub support for the major towers that are just now coming out of the ground. At each end of the mall, large, light-filled atria form a dramatic entrance, drawing in the passing street traffic.
Our main photographic challenge was to find camera angles which didn’t make the mall appear to be in the middle of a major construction site.
The dynamic interiors house the usual variety of retail brands which, with the apparent wealth from the regions development of natural resources, all seem to be doing well.
